My name is Kıvanç Başkaya and I’m from Turkey. I would like to introduce myself as a self-taught street photographer and observer of life. Observing life offers us lots of interesting moments and I like sharing the moments that I witnessed. For me, street photography is like telling a story. That is why, I do not prefer planned or staged shoots. I travel a lot because of my work and I have had the opportunity of taking photos in different places around the world. However, I know that the city I live in is the best one yet. As you all might know, renounced photographers like Alex Webb or Gueorgui Pinkhassov frequently visit İstanbul to shoot. Thanks to them, I had a chance to see Istanbul from a different angle and I enjoyed that angle very much.
